UFA Member Report 2020 - Governance & RCF

"Work on the farm doesn’t stop for

a pandemic. Agriculture is and always

will be an essential service, and this was

never more evident than in 2020.

As a co-operative, UFA is a proud

advocate for our members, our industry

and our potential for growth."

Kevin Hoppins, Board Chair

Leading. Together.

UFA’s board of 11 directors is proud to

collectively serve in the interest of members

in alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

Voices. Represented.

Our 42 delegates live and work in the

communities we serve. They are elected by eligible voting

members to act as their representative voice and,

in turn, elect the Board of Directors.

Industry. Advocated.

In 2020, UFA chaired the Ag Committee reporting to the

Premier of Alberta’s Economic Recovery Council to

ensure essential services remained available,

and the agricultural industry a focus.

Community Projects. Funded.

The Rural Communities Foundation received 150 submissions

for projects that support either recreational or

education events and activities, or cultural facilities and

programs. Of these submissions, four communities

were selected to receive a total of $100,000

in combined funding: Castor, Irvine,

Pincher Creek and Vegreville.
